THE OBJECT´S DREAM - Chema Madoz at the Museum für angewandte Kunst Frankfurt

Not everything is as it seems. 50 photographs by Chema Madoz explore this in ‘The Object’s Dream’ an exhibition on show at Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt, until 29 August. The works were realised between 1990 and 1999 and are on display in the Spanish photographer’s first exhibition in Germany.

Chema places everyday objects in another context – their juxtaposition wirth other objects gives them a new meaning. These constructions play with reality, cleverly constructed art becomes the apparent photographed reality.

Chema Madoz confuses and amuses us. He leaves us with a satisfied and yet slightly uneasy feeling, one, which isn’t quite what it seems outside the museum walls either.

Chema Madoz was born in 1958, Madrid. He studied History of Art at Complutense University, Madrid and was already interested in photography at the time of his studies. His work has been displayed on a worldwide scale since 1985. He has won international awards such as Premio Nacional de Fotografía, Ministerio de Cultura, España (2000) and the Higashikawa Award. Overseas Photographer, Higashikawa PhotoFestival, Japan (2000).

His work is held in collections at Museo de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Museum of Fine Arts Houston and the DZ Bank Collection, Frankfurt. The Object’s Dream is a Photography Forum Frankfurt exhibition in cooperation with Enrica Viganò, curator at Admira (Milan), the Chema Madoz Studio and the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt.
